Paris: 4 family members detained after Champs-Elysees attack

The small white auto caught on fire after the collision, but neither officers nor members of the public were hurt, an Interior Ministry spokesman said.

Asked on BFM television why his permit wasn't rescinded, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said that "if you take away a permit from someone who is the subject of surveillance or being monitored, he will quickly understand why it has been taken away".

The man, who died in the attack, was carrying in his vehicle an assault rifle, two pistols, ammunition and two large gas canisters, two police sources and the judicial official said. "It's a hard decision".

He added that "nobody can be satisfied - and certainly not me" that Dzaziri had still been able to possess unsafe weapons.
